To save money, many students choose to use books from the library or buy books from students who have already taken the course.
Most schools charge some yearly fees to help cover the cost of facilties, like the computer labs and libraries, athletic facilities, and more.
There may be additional fees associated with participating in certain activities, like Greek Life, or participating in sports or other extracurriculars. Many schools have ways for students with financial need to get help covering these fees.
The total cost of transportation in college depends on a few key factors. Will you take a subway, car or an airplane to get to school? Will you need to pay to park on-campus? Is the campus walkable? Do you own a car, or are you planning to use busses, subways, or other modes of transportation? All of these questions can make a big difference in your transportation budget. At Georgia Tech, freshman are allowed to park on campus.
A school's location can also have a big effect on the amount you'll have to spend just to get around. Small, rural schools may be easier to get around, but the cost of getting to campus may be higher. On the flip side, getting around in an urban area may be costly, but there may be more buses, trains and affordable flights to actually get to school. The Georgia Institute of Technology campus is located in a urban setting in Georgia, near Atlanta.
When creating a budget for college, be sure to consider the cost of things like movies, takeouts, furniture or appliances for your dorm or housing, and essentials like laundry detergent, toothpaste and toilet paper.
